      Without seeing your setup I don't know what could be wrong. You might want to try the first method in post #16. Note that this only requires you to connect ethernet to ethernet, make sure DHCP is enabled in the Hub and turn off its wireless. Disable DHCP on the Netgear and give it an address in the range of the Hub, 192.168.0.254 would do. Try that and see how you get on. If it does not connect straight away, reboot the Netgear.

      Hi IsItMe - just to let you know I have finally got the Netgear working alongside the SR102 - I must of not followed the instructions very well the first time, all is working now - Thank you! followed WAN connection option, similar to the DLINK DIR-613 set up.

      I have also messaged Marjohn as well - thanks again for the advice

      Update from tp-link. Not good news really...

      "After consulting , it seems like the beta firmware was newly released ."

      "There is no plannation for latter firmware at this moment"

      Don't really get this as the beta is 150413 but the latest is way higher. Shame really as we can't get the latest hot fix's.....I explained as soon as you update the firmware it deletes the*mer*support option.....

      Now there is a great example of English grammar.

      Correction, thanks to MarJohn with a nod to Leslie Nielsen
